Unhappy help a newb get more power

I'm fairly new here, my mods are in my sig.
I love my truck and have never had a problem with it, but it feels so gutless when you punch it, it goes once the turbo spools up but from a low speed it has horrid throttle response, it smokes like a train with the chip up but i want power. Dont get me wrong, i love smoke as much as the next guy but i want to go fast haha. I have the normal mods(chip, intake, exhaust), i feel like an upgraded hpop would be the next thing i want, but i wanted advice from you guys. i also get some bad turbo surge in the right conditions. I still have to pass emissions so im trying to keep that in mind.

If your turbo is surgin then you should upgrade to a 38r or an sd66. Gettin some good tunes on that chip would help as well

I have to agree the tunes that the TS chips come with are nothing compared to some of the custom tuners out there It was night and day when I had my TS reburnt.

If your running 37" tires on factory gears, there would be some benefit to going to lower gears.

That is not saying that turbo, tunes, and hpop aren't good upgrades! Just something else to think about. Also, something that your transmission might appreciate! haha

imo 37's and stock gears run pretty good. for the price to go from 3.73 to 4.11 (which isn't much) i couldn't see doin it. op is prolly makin less than 300 at the wheels.

Yeah, I don't feel that it's putting too much HP to the wheels. I don't want it to be a rocket, and I hardly tow at all. different gears is out of the picture i think. I would like custom tunes i just have no idea how to go about it. I do not know whos good or not or whats worth it. What im trying to get is solid power, not super fast acceleration or incredible top speed. I want throttle response and a solid pull all the way through the gears. thanks for the suggestions, i want to get a 38r and an upgraded HPOP if its necessary, but i dont want to get into injectors or anything more serious due to it being my DD and im only 18 so i dont want to get in over my head, ive got way too much money in this truck already so i dont want to throw a rod or anything. Plus I need to pass emissions.
